Do you have an old ceiling fan that you are contemplating replacing because the style just doesn’t seem to fit your liking today? If so, an alternative to getting a new fan may be the purchase of ceiling fan blade covers.
The cost of this ceiling fan is much less than a new fan and can go a long way to spice up your room. These covers can dramatically change the look of your present fan to one that seems more up to date or even new.
Ceiling fan blade covers simply slip on over your existing fan blades and are secured through various methods. The new look can provide your room with an esthetic boost that will have your friends asking how much your new fan cost. There are many different styles of blade covers to choose from so you can decide on the look that best fits your taste.

This specific cover is meant to be used with their Vera Cruz model ceiling fan. The cover is made of extra strong canvas and is considered a “sail-cloth” blade. Each color will provide a uniquely different look to your fan and still ensure the proper airflow distribution that you have come to expect from your fan.
Another popular choice in ceiling fan blade covers are the palm “fronds” which create an exotic tropical theme to your ceiling fan. These fronds look like original palm leaves and add an up to date style that many find quite impressive.
The fronds slip over an existing blade that is up to 6 inches in width and can be tightened securely. Most of the covers are made of a high tensile strength ABS Resin and come in colors like: Ivory, Sand and Burl. Additionally, the frond covers tend to provide better air circulation in a room without a noticeable down draft.
